Rep. Steve Stockman gives critics ammunition with AR-15 giveaway

If there was any question that Rep. Steve Stockman is using his Bushmaster rifle giveaway to tweak the gun control crowd, his entreaty to “Grab this gun before Obama does!” should settle the matter. Before you enter, though, be sure to read the fine print: there are apparently some laws on the books that regulate gun sales and transfers:

DISCLAIMER: No purchase or donation necessary to win. Void where prohibited. Must be a U.S. resident at least 18 years of age to be eligible to win. Winner drawn randomly. Firearms prizes must be claimed through a licensed firearms dealer in accordance with federal, state and local law. Firearms prize winners must meet all legal requirements and will be subject to a dealer’s background check.

Did we mention you should read the fine print?

How many anti-gun advocates will enter just to keep that killing machine out of the bad guys’ hands? We’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, the Democrats’ communications director is not amused.
